Engineering

Innovating technologies and electromechanical systems designed for commercialization

Our engineering staff supports the full product life cycle, from opportunity and early concept through commercialization and post-commercialization support. We execute detailed design of products containing mechanical, electrical and software components under design controls through verification and design transfer.

We support innovation by proving and adapting new technologies to address market opportunities in novel ways. Our focus is on driving technology innovation to develop robust, cost effective, novel ways to deliver better care.

Our team designs and optimizes connected electro-mechanical systems to create the backbone of a successful device. Our process pushes risk upstream by employing an iterative sub-system approach while ensuring early alignment with manufacturers and other key suppliers to ensure a smooth commercialization process.

Activities:

Electro-mechanical system concepting and architecture

System and component level risk analysis

Low-fidelity prototyping to support early design evaluation and refinement

High-fidelity prototyping to support cadaver, animal lab and human factors evaluation

Design verification

Structural, fluidic, thermal, acoustical and optical system design

Analog and Digital Design and Simulation (using both chip sets and ASICs)

Embedded software and mobile applications development

Software development using high-level and assembly languages

Outputs:

System level block diagrams and electrical schematics

Fault trees and dFMEAs

Component and sub-system mechanical breadboards, development PCBs and algorithms

Proof-of-Principle and looks-like / works-like prototypes

3D CAD databases, PCB layouts and software files

Design Inputs documentation, test protocols, verification reports and design history file
